when I home-schooled my son,

when I home-schooled my son, for 2 years, they kept a desk with his name on it, just so they could get additional funding. he was in the "gifted" program and they get extra funds for that.

they'd call all the time giving us the sales pitch to come back to school

i finally caved when he got to high school, so he'd get more social interaction and play some sports. he's been at 18th grade level since 6th grade. he hasn't studied 1 minute for the last 2 years and has a 4.8GPA

they don't expect much from these kids.
